Is an actual written letter of resignation actually needed nowadays when quitting or is a verbal notice enough?

Yes. A written letter is a formality but you should still turn it in. Covers you legally and makes your resignation official

Still counts as written, no?

I have always provided verbal notice first and then followed up with a written letter/email as a formality.

Verbal to direct manager first, then email to manager and copying HR to say "per our conversation this is my formal notice that I've decided to resign, my last day will be X date, thank you so much for the opp, wish the org success, thx bye"
Short and professional

Verbal to supervisor and HR will tell you what they need which is a letter or email. You don’t need the letter prepared when you resign.

Tagging on to this chain - is it really shitty to give 10 days vs. 2 weeks?

I ended up having to do this since my boss was on vacay when I accepted the offer and I wanted to resign in person. She understood and knows I am working as hard as possible to leave everything as wrapped up as possible. I think it’s more important the effort you put it in leaving things in a good place then the time you give for a notice. You could give 2 weeks and not do shit for those 2 weeks

Or should I just accept it to have a foot in the door and try to transfer after I joined? Many thanks for your advice
